I think cordless matters a lot less with a track saw. These things excel at their dust collection compared to a circular saw. If you're going to be hooking up a dust extractor or shop vac to it anyway, then a power cord isn't going to make much of a difference anyway.
You're obviously an experienced woodworker, but some of the advice you give here is so strange and nonsensical

Track saws have fantastic dust collection, if you're running a hose for dust collection it's no extra work to be using a corded version, especially since you can plug the cable into a dust extractor which will automatically turn on when you turn on the track saw.

Basically there are no downsides to a corded version and there are huge upsides like not having to worry about batteries decaying over the years

I missed out on the Black Friday variant, seen it again for Cyber Monday and didn't hesitate. I also placed a second order and was able to use the $25 discount again. I added the rail clamps (191J52-3), 59" rail bag and a screwdriver kit. I needed the screwdriver and I want the Makita rail clamps since they attach to the underside of the rails/won't get in the way. The bag however, I don't care about its branding but it let me re-use the $25 coupon so I grabbed it @ half price.

My woodworking (at least anything I'll use this for) is all at one location with power on tap. I do car audio and don't want to deal with swapping batteries while building enclosures. The fact I'm upgrading from the Kreg Accu-cut XL this is a huge upgrade, plus it'll cut down on dust significantly.

If you've not had a track saw before, you'll eventually grow out if the clamps. Especially if just using the 55" track alone.

But the clamps will likely collect dust once you get a guide rail square. (I found a surprisingly accurate and affordable one on Amazon. I ordered it just out if curiosity, and I'm pretty shocked that it's really nice, and I didn't need to exchange it several times or just return it.)

But there are exceptions for clamps... I just haven't used mine in a while, and I haven't seen anyone using them as of late.

Thanks, cancelled the second order with clamps & bag while I do more research on the squares. I'm debating getting the 118" rail instead of another 55 & mounting adapter. I am keeping the corded track saw purchase tho, for my purpose there's not many benefits to go cordless but there is some cons.

Good deal, but, if you're forkin' out ~$400 , ya gotta go cordless. Plus, while the 55" track is great, it won't be enough unless you're using it with an MFT type table for crosscutting.

Then, buy some knockoff batteries and charger (if not on the platform). And cycle through several the process of Powetec tracks (inspect each track, then go through the process of returning, and getting a new set to inspect, then returning, etc.) Until you get 2 good tracks.

No doubt I'll get downvoted into Oblivion... so I might as well say it...
At the end of the day, you'll have a nice track saw... designed for lefties. Yep. Right blade track saws are for lefties, and people that don't mind crawling on the floor now and then.

And sadly, there's no such thing as a good left blade track saw on the entire planet. Kreg makes a corded one, but it's the same price as the Makita, and as good as the WEN.

So... while it is a great deal with getting the track, basically for free... you'll rue the day ya bought the corded one. And if ya wish you could make all your rip cuts on your right side, you wonder why no one has made a good left blade version yet. (The answer is Festool refuses, so other companies have no left blade track saw to copy.)

Which squares are you using on your rail... I googled, and found TSO Guide Rail Squares for about $200 a set that look nice, but pricey.

Please correct me if I'm wrong but the corded versions motor uses carbon brushes, whereas the cordless options are brushless motors. The RPM range differs between corded and cordless. The cordless versions also have an electric brake. I think they also come with different blades.

Aside from the brushless motor the rest may all be don't care situations.

Edit: I checked, the corded version has a motor with carbon brushes. Cordless versions are brushless.

It's going to depend on job site vs home/shop where most already have a table saw. If I were ripping multiple items the same width, I would rather just use the table saw. If it's just a one off cut on a job, I wouldn't even think about dust collection and would prefer battery. Some guys have a track saw sitting in their truck/trailer and it's only used for those one off cuts.

The TSO are great.... but a bit beyond pricey. (But they're targeting the Woodpeckers crowds by giving them to most youtube "influential" woodworkers.) And they're about $80 overpriced.

The ones I just bought, https://a.co/d/4bDPJ4Q , were actually surprisingly awesome for <$40

I expected them to be just another cheap Alibabba/Wish resell... and they are lol. But, they were darn near perfect. Mist of the Chinese Knock9ffs are one cheap buckle and cast aluminum... these are cut, and machined with two buckles lol... but it makes a difference.

In fact, at 20" it's only off by .007" which really surprised me.

Now... odds are, I got the best ones to ever come from that factory lmao... but, I've seen a few other sellers, selling the identical pair, and they don't have the standard 2.8/5 ratings lol.
So, if you get it, make sure it's square to your specifications. If not, keep exchanging them until you get a good one, or get your $ back. But know this... the $50-$100 versions, are about as good as the $20 versions. Lol.

If all else fails, make your own square Smilie

If you keep an eye on Ebay, you can get the Makita rail adapters under $10 with free shipping on occasion. And they're fine for joining the tracks. The knockoff track connectors are horrible though.

The 118" is great, if you can fit it in your shop, and don't need to travel.


It's crazy how the 55" was only $68 a few months ago. Now, it's often over $100.

I have 1 makita 55" and the two Powertecs ... one powertech I use as a hinging crosscut track for fast cuts at my bench.

Also, if you have the makita palm router (corded or cordless... the cordless were $80 the other day) then you reallllly need to get the plunge base and then the track adapter. Couple that with a fold down hinging track mounted to your bench, and it's instant dado season!!! Lol. You can slso rig it up with a cheap lazy Susan bearing under it to put your workpiece on, and you have a really fast circle cutter.
